Actor needed for male role for Prodigals: a new play by Sean Minogue
Presented by Twenty-Something Theatre
Directed by Peter Boychuk
Run: April 27 – May 2, 2010, Havana Theatre
Audition Day: Friday, April 2, 2010
Rehearsals: Tues/Thurs evening and Sat/Sun daytime for the month of April (approx 50 hours). ***If you are not available for the stated rehearsal times DO NOT submit.
Require: 1 male (age 20-30) to play the role of Greg – A loudmouth drunk who lives off his “old country” Italian parents. He expects little from life and gets as much in return. He would prefer having a guaranteed good time over taking a risk any day. Greg has never had a real relationship because he’s emotionally immature. More than anything, he loves to bitch.
Synopsis of the play: Set in a small bar in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, six young underachievers await the results of a murder trial that’s hit close to home. Their world of drinking, sarcasm and missed opportunities is flipped upside down when a former friend returns from Toronto to testify in the trial, reopening old wounds and creating some new ones as well.

Deadline: 6pm Thursday, April 1, 2010
